[Haskell-cafe] Cabal-install prefix

I am new to Haskell, and am trying to install a package (scan) using
cabal-install.  I want it to install all files under the directory
${HOME}/nonvc, like in ~/nonvc/share and ~/nonvc/bin.  So I specified

install-dirs user
  -- prefix: /home/raghu/nonvc

in ~/.cabal/config.  But when I do `cabal install scan', it still
installs the files in ~/.cabal/bin and ~/.cabal/share.  How do I make
cabal install these files in ~/nonvc?

Thanks and regards,
